Cuatro Pasos

Castilla y León, castilla y leon Spain

Martín Códax is very much riding the 'new wave' of modern Spanish winemaking. As well as their work in pioneering the whites of Galicia, winemakers Luciano Amoedo and Katia Álvarez also make a robust, lively and modestly priced Bierzo from the native Mencía variety. The name 'Cuatro Pasos' (or 'four steps') refers to four ancient bear paw-prints that were found near the winery.

The Bierzo DO lies to the east of Rías Baixas and has a significantly warmer climate. The fruit is sourced from low yielding, 80 year old Mencía vines, grown in the high areas of the region. The Mencía Bierzo is full of fresh red berry fruit with subtle hints of toasty oak. Elegant and balanced on the palate, it has a juicy, fruit driven finish that makes it perfect for enjoying on its own or with food. The more intense Black Mencía Bierzo spends eight months in French (75%) and American (25%) oak and is full-bodied with integrated tannins, and toasted spice and smoke notes mixed with morello cherry and dark red fruits.
